[New Research on Sitting]
A 2020 study from global researchers, relying on movement tracking data from tens of thousands of people worldwide, found that people who were the most sedentary were significantly more likely to die young.
The good news...
It doesn’t take a whole lot of movement to counteract that threat. Just 11 minutes of brisk walking or other mild exercise each day (even for the group that sat the most) led to significant reductions in early death.
The sweet spot...
35 minutes of moderate activity, which led to the most longevity gains—no matter how long people sat. (1)
